This term I originally heard when in my ESAM 411-2 class. Prof. Kath described a couple of methods for solving partial differential equations, and mentioned that the difference between two techniques was “conservation of difficulty.”
However, I didn’t want to write about academia today. Rather, I rode my bike yesterday in place of a bus in order to get to League yesterday. This route is about 3.5 miles on an arterial road in Chicago.
On the way TO League, I had to fight a mostly-headwind. It was not completely against me, but mostly against me. However, maybe to throw me a bone, I managed to mostly avoid having to stop for red lights.
You can guess where this is going. After I finished with League and rode back toward the train station, I hit almost every red light, which led to an annoying ride, even though the wind was with me.
If I had to choose, in the city, between headwind but no red lights or tailwind and all red lights, I would actually choose the headwind with no red lights. I like to keep moving when riding my bike, and sometimes I feel that the stop-and-go patterns can be tough on my knees.
What is your biggest annoyance on the road, whether it be on bike or in a vehicle?
